Portraying Our Communities: Latinx Photography Past and Present
December 15, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
FREE via Zoom LIVE. RSVP at link.
On the occasion of the current exhibition En Foco: The New York Puerto Rican Experience, 1973-1974, join El Museo del Barrio in conversation with contemporary photographers Sebastian Hidalgo and Star Montana. Working in their hometowns of Pilsen, Chicago, and East Los Angeles respectively, the two photographers represent new generations of Latinx photographers whose practices reflect a shared, community-driven ethos with the Bronx-based collective. Moderated by El Museo’s Curator Susanna V. Temkin, the discussion will center on Hidalgo and Montana’s current projects, and will consider the significance as well as on-going challenges of centering Latinx narratives within contemporary photography.
The conversation will be preceded by an introduction and virtual walk-through of the exhibition by El Museo’s Chief Curator, Rodrigo Moura.
